People Get to the Deepest Point on Earth – level 2

16-11-2020 07:00

China’s deep-sea submarine reached the world record depth of 10,000 meters.

The manned submarine was on its way to the deepest point on Earth, the bottom of the Mariana Trench. It is 10,971 meters deep and it is located in the western Pacific Ocean. There are three men on the submarine, and they will explore the ocean floor. The crew uses robotic hands to get samples. They use high-quality cameras that livestream video back to the top of the ocean.

The submarine has very bright lights that make it possible to see in places that are completely dark. There is no light at this depth, so the submarine is a green color which makes it visible.

Difficult words: manned (a ship or vehicle that people control), robotic hand (a mechanical hand that a person controls and it works similarly to a human hand), sample (an object from somewhere, an example of something), livestream (to broadcast something at the moment when it is happening).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
